I have been riding since I was about 5 years old (about 14 years). I have been trained in the english disciplines of hunter/jumper, beginner dressage, and eventing. I have worked with a Hunt Club exercising their horses and farm sitting. I have just recently purchased my second horse, after having to sadly retire and sell my first horse. I am excited to work with him in eventing and just have fun this summer! Even though I have been trained in english, I have always been interested in the western disciplines as well, and am always willing to learn anything and everything about horses!
I came across your page , and if you would like to try something different with your horse or any member of your stable I wanted to introduce myself and my hobby. My name is Gary Glaser and I am the mounted commander of the 9th New York Cavalry and live in Binbrook, Ont. I belong to a group of equine enthusiasts that enjoy living historians and American civil war, we are the 9th NY cavalry. The Ninth New York Cavalry has been reactivated by ain the portrayal of the life of the Federal Horse Soldier. As a group, we participate in living history encampments, re-enactments, and giving informative lectures throughout the year in both Ontario and the U.S. Visit use on the web atwww.9thnycavalry.com .
I would like to forward you 2 you tube sites dealing with Civil War re enacting, , the first is well put together, and it is from this past year at a large event in Gettysburg, unfortunately none of our members were at this event, but do know a large number of the riders. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBCgFdTWLx4 The second one is a smaller event held at Upper Canada village, the 9th was the mounted cav. at this event, and this would be a typical small event .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCx3Xkn9Wuc If you have any one in your stable that would interest in becoming involved in our group , do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . We are not a stable and are not associated with any stable. We are a not for profit group. Thank You Gary Glaser
